Very nice vibe, food only available from 17:30 though. But open from 11:30 for drinks. Staff very friendly and make you feel welcome. Fair pricing and beach vibe with beach sand in the restaurant.

Visited for late lunch, 4 adults and 2 fractious children. Staff very pleasant, busy though, therefore service slow. Restaurant, casual, but nice atmosphere We had sushi, was very good, extra plate of chips for children. Price v reasonable.

This location clearly has an attraction, however the service and quality of food was extremely dissapointing. There are notices to let you know that food takes a hour + and that it will be worth your while, this however is far from reality. The food was dissapointing. Ordered food never arrived even asking for it on two occasions. Extra items... More

We've booked a table and had the seafood platters. The fish was so tasty and prepared in a unconventional palatable batter. The calamari was marrow soft and also very tasty. Same goes for the prawns, mussels and potato wedges. After reading not so good reviews, we were sceptical prior to our dining experience. What a wonderful surprise. The staff was... More

Awesome setting but food too expensive. Also, not a fan of the 12% tip being added to the bill automatically. Gratuity is the only calling card we have against bad service delivery, but it gets taken away. I don't like decisions being made for me.

We visit Tapas every second year when we come to see family in the area. This year the food lacked a lot of love and flavour. Prawns were not great, calamari ok. Service was fine, wine was not chilled to desire temperature. Got the feeling that the team is quite over it

What a fantastic experience. We booked Christmas lunch here and all I can say. Amazing. Prawns, Calamari, Beef Chicken, Fish as much as you wanted. The pumpkin fritters was like my Mom used to make them. Well done guys, you really made our day!!

Extremely relaxing. Cold feeling of one's feet in the sand whilst sitting at a table to eat. Talking about eating, boy oh boy oh boy, exceptional food. Way to much for 1 person, the platter for 2 fed 3 and we still took a doggy bag. The chicken strips was like non other. The prawns, to die for. A TOTAL... More
